Blu-ray Buying Guide

Blue-ray is a disc format like HD-DVD aimed at enhancing viewers' experience while watching movies and videos by improving the colors, settings, and details. Blu-ray players can make older DVDs compatible with the newer high-definition TVs. Take a look at this informative guide to know about the benefits and the factors to consider while investing in a Blu-ray player.  

Blu-ray Vs. DVD 

Although the intention and function of blue Ray and DVD are the same, a Blu-ray comes with a higher capacity of 25GB on single-layered discs and 50GB on double-layered discs. As compared to them a DVD comes with 15GB on single-layered discs and 30GB on double-layered discs.  

Benefits of Owning a Blu-ray 

Capacity 

One of the major advantages of having a Blu-ray is the capacity. Such a gadget allows you to store massive data equivalent to 25 Gb or 27 GB in one disc. This is almost equal to viewing 3-4 hours of uninterrupted video time. 

Economical 

Blu-ray allows a wider tolerance than DVD players in terms of storage. Thus, when it comes to cost per Giga bite, it is a very economical solution.  

Sound and Audio 

Blu-ray offers 7.1 channel sound which makes viewing in home theatres a surreal experience. This makes them very popular among their fans.  

Resolution 

Blu-ray offers 1080p resolution for videos allowing the pictures to be crisp, and clear. They also come with enhanced interactive features making them suitable for viewing HD movies right from the comfort of your house.  

Factors to Consider while Buying a Blue-ray Player 

4K Upscaling 

This is a very crucial factor for those who have a 4K television. Although many models do automatically come with a 4K upscaling picture, some standard versions do not. Therefore, identify this feature from the product description before investing. 

HDR 

Although most of the modern models come with an HDR feature, they only cover it for the discs that it plays. If you are planning on using integrated apps like Netflix, go for a Blu-ray player that has the HDR feature extended to integrated apps.  

Dolby Vision License 

Having a Blu-ray player compatible with Dolby vision is an added advantage. This feature allows you to adjust the contrast of the videos. However, having this feature requires a Dolby license, and thus, all players do not come with it. Ensure that you Blu-ray player has the license for Dolby.  

Wi-Fi 

Wi-Fi feature is an in-built feature in many of the models of Blu-ray. But if you are settling for a budget model ensure that this feature is added to your player. This will help you to watch through integrated apps easily.  

App Streaming 

To have this feature is essential if you own a standard TV model. Smart TVs or Roku TVs already have this feature available and thus syncing a Blu-ray player in such sets does not demand app streaming compatibility. Therefore, identifying your requirement before the purchase is necessary. 

High-Resolution Audio 

If you watch frequent videos in your home theatres, it is best to go for Blu-ray players with high-resolution audio. This feature although increasingly common is usually found towards the higher spectrum of cost.   

Cost 

The cost of a Blu-ray player can range somewhere between $119 for the basic models to $259 for advanced models depending on the features, brand, and warranty. So, pick the one that suits your budget the most.  

Warranty 

Usually, the warranty for such players lasts anywhere between 1-3 years depending on the brand and the model. However, understanding the warranty beforehand is important. In cases of online purchase understanding, the return policy will help in cases of accidental damage. 

Conclusion 

Having a device like Blu-ray is important to have a seamless experience while viewing videos or watching HD movies. Technology is moving at a fast pace and having a machine to suffice the needs of the future is not possible. However, going for a model that is at par with the latest technology will ensure that a need to upgrade them sooner is eliminated. To know more about your buying choices, take a look at our featured section above. These products are recommended for their performance, quality, cost, and durability.
